Precious Cargo at Carl's

When you hear a possible hurricane may hit your area, do you wonder what to do with the wine in your collection and cellar? There's a team of wine professionals here in Naples who can help you get ready for the storm using a modular system that keeps your investment safe, even if flooding occurs.

"In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, we at Carl’s Wine Vault have seen an unprecedented level of our clients trusting us with their wine collections. We have had more requests than we could answer, but rest assured that we are working to save all of your wine in an environmentally responsible manner," says Rachel Keller, Carl's founder.  After the storm and through the cleanup, her team was there day and night to help clients. "We worked around the clock to save what they had from their homes and collections. We thought we'd seen everything during this storm, but we were catching up on some much-needed sleep when we started fielding calls from Boca Grande that their cellars were flooded, AND damage to their house occurred 3 stories above ground!! We were able to go out with our re-packing cases to ensure the safe delivery of every bottle."

The good news is that during the hurricane, the Solar System with the Tesla battery backup saved the day. It did such a good job, the diesel generator was never called on to help.  Carl's boasts a solar system and is the only commercial building in Florida with that capacity. Then, of course, being on the third floor they never had a concern about flooding. "As hurricane season keeps us on our toes, know that we are here to help, to keep your valuable collection safe," says Linda Lesh, director of client services.

Your wine collection is one of your most valuable investments that require additional care to keep it protected. At Carl's, the wine storage units combine exceptional customer service with the latest wine vault and locker technology. They take care of the wine storage needs of private collectors, restaurants, wine distributors, and auction houses.  

Whether you enjoy your wine collection or see it as an investment, Linda and her team can help you protect, manage, and grow your investment. Your wine collection is safe in Carl’s Wine Vault and is protected from weather, temperature fluctuations, and other conditions that may jeopardize the integrity and value of your wine collection.

Carl’s Wine Vault aims to provide a safe space for wine collectors to keep their possessions without worrying about climatic conditions and facilities. "We understand the sentiments behind each bottle of wine you possess and want to preserve it the best way possible," promises Rachel.
